Oracle's Oration
Noticings students may generate:
 Amani and Biagio are two travelers who stop by the side of the road to eat.
 Amani has seven bread rolls.
 Biagio has five bread rolls.
 Amani and Biagio have 12 bread rolls all together.
 Caleb would like to share Amani and BiagioÕs bread with them.
 I wonder if sharing means eating the same number of rolls.
 Each of the three eats four bread rolls.
 I wonder if sharing the rolls means that they ate all of them.
 The three ate 12 rolls all together.
 The number of rolls they ate is equal to the number of rolls Amani and Biagio started with.
 There were no rolls left after the three ate their share.
 Amani ate 4 of her rolls and gave out 3.
 Biagio ate 4 of his rolls and gave out 1.
 Caleb didn't have any rolls of his own.
 Caleb took all of the rolls he ate from Biagio and Amani.
 Caleb got one of his rolls from Biagio and 3 of his rolls from Amani.
 Caleb left a payment of 12 silver pieces for the rolls.
 I wonder what bread rolls Caleb paid for. Did he pay of all of the rolls or the ones he ate or something else?
 Amani thinks that she should get seven of the 12 silver pieces Caleb left.
 Amani thinks that Biagio should get five of the 12 silver pieces Caleb left.
 I wonder whether Amani thinks that Caleb left 1 silver piece for each of the 12 bread rolls they all started
with.
 Biagio thinks that he and Amani should share the silver pieces equally and get 6 pieces each.
 Biagio thinks that if he and Amani shared the rolls equally then they should be sharing the pieces of silver
equally.
 I wonder whether Biagio thinks that sharing the rolls equally means eating the same number of rolls.
 I wonder if the number of rolls Amani and Biagio shared was equal to those that they each ate or to those
that they each gave out.
 I wonder if Caleb paid for the rolls that they all ate or for those that he ate.
 The Oracle decided that Amani should get nine silver pieces.
 The Oracle decided that Biagio should get three silver pieces.
 The Oracle decided that Amani should get 6 more silver pieces than Biagio.
 The Oracle decided that Amani should get 3 times the number of silver pieces Biagio gets.
 I wonder how did the Oracle make his decision.
 The Oracle didn't think that Amani and Biagio shared their rolls equally.
 The Oracle gave Amani 2 more silver pieces than the number of bread rolls she started with and gave
Biagio 2 fewer silver pieces than the number of bread rolls he started with.
 Amani gave two bread rolls to Caleb and one bread roll to Biagio.
 There are 3 people sharing the bread rolls and the Oracle gave Amani three times the amount of money he
gave to Biagio.
